“Emblematic” shirt now available on Redbubble!

I’ve been mulling over this design for quite some time, and it turned out even better than I expected it to! I wanted to create something that any Fire Emblem fan could wear, regardless of which game/universe is your area of expertise. In the future I plan on designing more FE shirts that are specific to particular installments. As always, let me know what you think!

Little Known FE Archetypes

So this post ended up being super successful, so have MORE FE TROPES, disclaimer, I’m a big fan of FE, but anything that’s Japanese only is a bit out of my expertise. So I may have missed someone, particularly FE2 characters since FE2 is like an enigma.

These are not including the formally recognized archetypes! The wiki has a list of those. 

Red Haired Shota Mage 

Boey (FE2), Azel (FE4), Ewan (FE8), Tormod (FE9/FE10), Ricken (FE13), Hayato (FE14)

Deirdre and Julia (FE4), Linoan (FE5), Ninian and Nils (FE7), Micaiah (FE10), and Azura (FE14)

Main Character’s Sister who is also a Healer

Clarine (FE6), Serra (FE7), L’Arachel (FE8), Maribelle (FE13), and Azama (FE14)
